Buffalo Bills's President and CEO Russ Brandon is responding to Sunday's incident where a fan fell from the third deck of Ralph Wilson Stadium and landed on another fan during the team's game against the New York Jets.

Russ Brandon released a statement saying, ""The irresponsible behavior that occurred at Sunday's game by the fan who fell from the upper deck is a violation of our Fan Code of Conduct and cannot, and will not, be tolerated. This individual will not be permitted back into Ralph Wilson Stadium. The vast majority of our fans who attend Bills home games at Ralph Wilson Stadium do so in a responsible manner and we continue to work diligently to eliminate those individuals who violate our Fan Code of Conduct from game days at our stadium. We are cooperating with the Erie County Sheriff's Office during their investigation of this incident and we want to extend our best wishes for a speedy recovery to the fan who was injured in the 200 level."

Erie County sheriff's spokeswoman Mary Murray says the incident is under investigation and charges may be filed. Investigators aren't releasing the names of those involved or commenting on the condition of either man on Monday.


A statement from the Bills on Sunday said both were taken to a hospital.
